LOST IN TRANSLATION: The splendidly named SNEP, the French music indsutry trade body, has turned up for the battle on filesharing. We're sure that it's just the translation of his words that give him the air of a much more laid back guy than his British and American counterparts, because chief Herve Rony sounds slightly less bothered than them: "It has happened very suddenly. Apparently, there is a link to the fall in the market and the increase in access to the internet" - it's like he's just got back off a really long holiday, isn't it? And while he mutters about perhaps needing to use the stick of legal action, he also warns that it's going to be a lot more difficult to convince the French authorities that extra legal protection is needed. That, and the fact the cheeses are so much better, makes us think that we might move to France.
